At my 30th birthday birthday I made a decision, a big decision!! I am going to run a marathon!!! CRAZY YOU SAY! Why yes I think I might be.
I have amazing inspiration. My grandfather was a Marathon runner and trained every morning and every night, running anywhere between 20-30km a day. He died when I was 11 and nothing would make me happier than to be able to follow in his footsteps.
|My amazing grandfather!|
So having made this huge decision, I enlisted the help of my uncle,he wrote me out a program and even came running with me at 5am most mornings
He ran a marathon a few years back and runs all the time, who better to ask to help me out?!?!?!
It was all going really well and lasted about 8 months THEN... I got lazy and it all stopped, so now I am going back to beginning and starting my training all over again, this time I was thinking, what better way to keep myself motivate than to share it with all of you!!! That way I am accountable!!
Mondays are rest days so on Mondays monday mornings I will weight myself, which means I have to go and buy a battery for the scales as they died. The other rest days are wednesdays and fridays for now but that will change a little as we get going. Sunday is long run days, and again as I get going these will get really long!!!!!!
At this point I am not really interested in times so I won't include them but as I get to the point that I can comfortably run 18km, it will be more about times and improving them.
Ok so wish me luck!!!!! Watch out Tuesday I have 5km to smash!!!!!!! Eeek!!!
